The absolute tropical idyll. Hidden amongst the madness of Chaweng is this perfect slice of tranquility. I can't see why you would want to stay anywhere else. Everything exceeds expectations, from the staff, the room and the food to the beach and the pool. Don't change anything, see you next year. (Morning James, you're still No. 1)

Just back from 11 nights at Poppies, I can't add anything else to what's already been said, the place is superb. If you're looking to go to Chaweng there is nowhere better than Poppies. It's also situated on the best part of Chaweng beach. We ate at the restaurant a couple of times and the food and service was excellent....

Normally I am sat on the receiving end of holiday reviews and appreciate a balanced and honest review so that other visitors know what to expect when they come to see our holiday park in Devon. We booked direct with the hotel including the airport transfers and felt very comfortable with the prompt response to our queries. Jeab was very...

We have looked at this wonderful hotel from the beach on other holidays to Samui and promised that we would visit one day.

We have to say that this boutique hotel deserves 6 stars, 5 is not enough. They picked us from the pier with a shuttle. The shuttle was welcoming us with flowers, cold water and fresh towels, in that moment we realized that Poppies Samui will be great!

Hello Pietjebella, Thank you for this wonderful review title - "Amazing Staff" We know that our staff truly are the most important part of the Poppies experience. We understand that the softest bed, the most beautiful garden and even gentlest waves mean little, unless the staff are switched on, engaged and genuinely care. Fortunately, over 20 of the 82 members...

Poppies has remained it's quaint, Thai charm even after 13 years when we first discovered their delightful restaurant and wonderful staff. We returned this time for a weeks stay at the end of March and were completely blown away by the beautiful ornate grounds our garden cottage was situated in. Each garden cottage is totally private and decorated to a...

Hi Liz, I really enjoyed reading your "Little Piece of Paradise" review - Thank you! You comments about the butterflies and the birds remind me to stop and take in all the beauty that surrounds me at Poppies.

This oasis set in a tropical backdrop of palms, flowers and flowing streams was a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area. The traditional style cottages were both comfortable and private. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and could not do enough for you. The personal attention provided by James was also much appreciated....

A tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment, Poppies Samui lies on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam. Located at the south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area, Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening in 1994, as Koh Samui's most exclusive boutique hideaway. In addition to offering the same idyllic style and charm as its famous namesake and sister hotel Poppies Bali, Poppies Samui offers its guests exceptionally high standards of friendly service and attention to detail in a perfect location. ... more   less
